Quotation: John Quincy Adams Love


By the power of filial reverence and parental affection, individual existence is extended beyond the limits of individual life, and the happiness of every age is chained in mutual dependence upon that of every other.

Today’s Birthday: FERDINAND III, HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR (1608) (When people fight among themselves they always forget about the common enemy! And that’s what the enemy counts on…)


Ferdinand III, Holy Roman Emperor (1608)

When Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III ascended the throne, the Thirty Years’ War had been raging for 20 years. After his accession, the war took a disastrous turn. Though he prohibited religious freedom in his own domains, he compromised with Europe’s Protestant powers and agreed to the Peace of Westphalia. The treaty ended 30 years of religious strife in central Europe but greatly reduced the central power of the Holy Roman Empire. Despite the war, Ferdinand made time to pursue what pastime?More… Discuss

 

Today in the Yesteryear: FIRST FIFA WORLD CUP KICKS OFF (1930)


First FIFA World Cup Kicks Off (1930)

Soccer, or association football, as it known throughout much of the world, has been an Olympic sport since 1900. In 1930, FIFA—soccer‘s international governing body—decided to stage its own tournament, the World Cup. Reigning Olympic champion Uruguay was chosen as host and went on to win the inaugural event. Today the tournament is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, but then it was a challenge just to get teams to participate. What else did not go as planned?More… Discuss

 

SAND CASTLES (as long as you keep that sand from drying)


Sand Castles

Sand is used extensively in the manufacture of bricks, mortar, cement, concrete, and plaster. However, perhaps its most well-known use as a building material is in sand castles. A common sight on beaches and sandboxes, simple sand castles require just a few tools and ingredients: a shovel, a bucket, water, and, of course, sand. Some more advanced sand sculptors use the “dripping” technique—dribbling wet sand down onto the castle foundation to form towers. Why does water make sand stick together? More… Discuss

Louis Armstrong and his Savoy Ballroom Orchestra – St. James Infirmary (1928)


Louis Armstrong (Aug.4,1901 – Jul.6,1971), nicknamed Satchmo, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer.

Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an innovative cornet and trumpet virtuoso, Armstrong was a foundational influence on jazz, shifting the music’s focus from collective improvisation to solo performers.

With his distinctive gravelly voice, Armstrong was an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also greatly skilled at scat singing, or wordless vocalizing.

Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and deep, instantly recognizable voice, Armstrong’s influence extended well beyond jazz, and by the end of his career in the ’60s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general: critic Steve Leggett describes Armstrong as “perhaps the most important American musician of the 20th century.”

Louis Armstrong-Go Down Moses



Go down, Moses, way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

Now when Israel was in Egypt land
(Let my people go)
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
(Let my people go) 

So the Lord said:
Go down, Moses
way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

So Moses went to Egypt land
(Let my people go)
He made old Pharaoh understand
(Let my people go)

Yes the Lord said:
Go down, Moses
way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go.

Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said,
(Let my people go)
If not I’ll smite your firstborn dead
(Let my people go)

‘Cause the Lord said:
Go down Moses 
Way down in Egypt land
Tell old Pharaoh
To let my people go

Tell old Pharaoh to let my people go

Leonard Cohen – Tonight will be fine (“…And I know from her eyes…”)



Sometimes I find I get to thinking of the past.
We swore to each other then that our love would surely last.
You kept right on loving, I went on a fast,
now I am too thin and your love is too vast.

But I know from your eyes
and I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
the windows are small and the walls almost bare,
there’s only one bed and there’s only one prayer;
I listen all night for your step on the stair.

But I know from your eyes
and I know from your smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

Oh sometimes I see her undressing for me,
she’s the soft naked lady love meant her to be
and she’s moving her body so brave and so free.
If I’ve got to remember that’s a fine memory.

And I know from her eyes
and I know from her smile
that tonight will be fine,
will be fine, will be fine, will be fine
for a while.

Neil Diamond – Morningside 1983 (check on your elder!)



Morningside (original de 1972, versión en vivo de 1983)

“And this is the story of an old man
“About a gift”
“And this is a dream”
“And this is a fantasy”

Morningside
An old man died
And no one cried
They surely turned away

And when he died
He left a table made of nails and pride
And with his hands
He carved these words inside
“For my children”

Morning light
Morning bright
I spent the night
With dreams that make you weep

Morning time
Wash away the sadness
From these eyes of mine
For I recall the words an old man signed
“For my children”

“And the legs were shaped with his hands”
“And the top made of the most beautiful oaken wood”
“And all of the children that gat around this great table”
“They touched it with their laughter”
“And all that was good”

Morningside
The old man died
And no one cried
He surely died alone

And truth is sad
For not a child would claim the gift he had
The words he carved became his epitaph
“For my children”

Neil Young – Old Man


Listen to more Neil Younghttp://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UT… Watch the full show: http://thesixtiesarchive.blogspot.com…

Old Man” is a song written and performed by Neil Young on his 1972 album Harvest.

The song was written for the caretaker of the Northern California Broken Arrow Ranch, which Young purchased for $350,000 in 1970. The song compares a young man’s life to an old man’s and shows that the young man has, to some extent, the same needs as the old one. James Taylor played six-string banjo (tuned like a guitar) and sang on the song, and Linda Ronstadt also contributed vocals. Continue reading

Chaos in Egypt: Christians “Hacked With Axes,” Priest Beheaded – Daniel Doherty


Chaos in Egypt: Christians “Hacked With Axes,” Priest Beheaded – Daniel Doherty.

Roughly ten percent of Egyptians self-identity as Christians. Sadly, however, many are now probably fearing for their lives as Muslim extremists prowl the streets with axes and the country looks increasingly unstable, according to theAssociated Press:

With a mob of Muslim extremists on their tail, [a] Christian businessman and his nephew climbed up on the roof and ran for their lives, jumping from building to building in their southern Egyptian village. Finally they ran out of rooftops.

Forced back onto the street, they were overwhelmed by several dozen men. The attackers hacked them with axes and beat them with clubs and tree limbs, killing Emile Naseem, 41. The nephew survived with wounds to his shoulders and head and recounted the chase to The Associated Press.

The mob’s rampage through the village of Nagaa Hassan, burning dozens of Christian houses and stabbing to death three other Christians as well, came two days after the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi from power. It was no coincidence the attackers focused on Naseem and his family: He was the village’s most prominent campaigner calling for Morsi’s removal.

These gruesome and senseless acts of violence are not uncommon. But why exactly are Christians in Egypt, specifically, being targeted? Well, because they had the audacity to participate in the political process, it seems:

Some Christians are paying the price for their activism against Morsi and his Islamist allies in a backlash over his ouster last week.

But they took it to a new level during Morsi’s year in office and the empowerment of his Islamist allies. The new Coptic Christian pope, Tawadros II, enthroned in November, openly criticized the president. He told Christians they were free to actively participate in politics and that the church will not discourage them. …

It was a risky gamble for a minority that has long felt vulnerable, with its most concentrated communities often living in the same rural areas where the most vehement and vocal Islamists hold sway.

During Morsi’s year in office, some of his hard-line allies increasingly spoke of Christians as enemies of Islam and warned them to remember they are a minority. When the wave of protests against Morsi began on June 30, Brotherhood media depicted it as dominated by Christians – and to hard-liners, it smacked of Christians rising up against a Muslim ruler.

Meanwhile, a decapitated Coptic priest’s cadaver turned up in Northern Sinai today (via The Right Scoop):

Amidst continuing unrest in Egypt, the country’s Coptic Christian minority is facing an alarming campaign of violence at the hands of Islamist extremists.

In the most recent case, the decapitated body of 60 year old Magdy Habashi was found early Thursday in a cemetery in the town of Sheikh Zweid, in northern Sinai, after being abducted last Saturday by suspected Islamist radicals. He was the second Christian to be killed in northern Sinai in less than a week, following the assassination of Coptic Christian priest Mena Aboud Sharoben in the coastal city of Arish by suspected Islamist gunmen last Saturday.

I don’t believe democracy in Egypt is even remotely possible when Christians are continually chased down and butchered for professing their faith and voicing their political opinions in the public square. Strangely, President Obama has remained conspicuously mum on this issue for a very long time. One wonders if he’ll ever break his silence in any meaningful way — especially now that he’s apparently given a green light to sending foreign aid and jets to Egypt’s interim government.

Wishmaster (1997) – Fear the djinn (this goes to Einstein, who’s awaken the djinn: Why Albert, why? )



Once, in a time before time, God breathed life into the universe. And the light gave birth to Angels. And the earth gave birth to Man. And the fire gave birth to the Djinn, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a Djinn shall be given three wishes. Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the Djinn shall be freed to rule the earth. Fear one thing in all there is…fear the Djinn.

Smiling, Thinking Of Math As Language


If math were to be our language, we would be all the making of a mad scientist, who recanted his monstrous insight in the things he shouldn’t have ever scratched: The Pandora’s Box. Now that he’s dust, what are we to do with his evil theories back in the box?

Planning our work with communities in diverse locations, language is a challenge, a puzzle. We are constantly on the lookout for new ways of thinking about how to resolve this puzzle, so when we hear this fellow speak on the topic, it makes us smile. Nothing to do with conservation, but everything having to do with community and collaboration at a very fundamental level, we thank Open Culture for bringing this wonderful recording to our attention:

The essay is called “The Common Language of Science.” It was recorded in September of 1941 as a radio address to the British Association for the Advancement of Science. The recording was apparently made in America, as Einstein never returned to Europe after emigrating from Germany in 1933.

Pixie Scientific’s ‘smart diapers’

The discussion around “wearable technology” is dominated by Google Glass, smart watches, and fitness trackers. But diapers — yes, diapers — may end up being a more practical use of wearable tech than any of those.

New York City startup Pixie Scientific claims to have engineered what it calls “smart diapers.” The company says these diapers can potentially detect urinary tract infections, kidney issues, dehydration, and even Type 1 diabetes. Those are critical issues for young children, and detecting these early could keep your child from becoming ill.

“I was driving with my wife and daughter one day when my wife asked if the baby had wet herself,” Pixie Scientific founder Yaroslav Faybishenko told the New York Times. “I realized she was sitting…

CAIRO — Egypt’s military took control of the country Wednesday, suspending the constitution and asking the head of the country’s high constitutional court to lead the nation in a transition period with a government comprised of “technocrats.”

In a somber announcement on national television, the country’s defense minister, Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, announced that the military had taken the action because Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, had shown himself unwilling to meet the demands of a fractured opposition that had wanted him to step down.
